    Nope, but does it matter?

    Assumingly your reply is something like, "No, I didn't go to University, I went straight in to work in IT and have been doing it ever since".

    End of issue.

    I came out of Uni at 24 (nearly 25). Saying that I was starting to bald then, and now I am nearly completely bald!

    You've got 4 years more experience than any university graduate. Don't let it bother you, you know you are better than what they "think".

    You almost aren't kidding. I have pulled more out than has fallen out in these past few years.
